SubjectLinux 2.2.18pre12

Just bug fixes. The sound stuff wants a good hard testing, the other stuff
shouldnt be too risky. Cyrix MTRR works again I hope. The ps/2 mouse
reconnect stuff is now an option you must enable to avoid breaking

Stuff left to do for 2.2.18final
- Support for >2GHz processors
- Merge the S/390 stuff and make S/390 build again
- Hunt bugs in the stuff so far.
- Fix the megaraid (revert if need be)

The S/390 stuff shouldnt touch the mainstream so from hereon in its simply
a case of squashing bugs as they pop out until its ready to be 2.2.18.
